Subject: [PATCH 2/5] MIPS/ptrace: Update mips_get_syscall_arg's return type
Date: Sun, 11 Aug 2019 20:31:17 -0700
Message-ID: <20190812033120.43013-3-natechancellor@gmail.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20190812033120.43013-1-natechancellor@gmail.com>

clang warns:

arch/mips/include/asm/syscall.h:136:3: error: variable 'ret' is
uninitialized when used here [-Werror,-Wuninitialized]
                ret |= mips_get_syscall_arg(args++, task, regs, i++);
                ^~~
arch/mips/include/asm/syscall.h:129:9: note: initialize the variable
'ret' to silence this warning
        int ret;
               ^
                = 0
1 error generated.

It's not wrong; however, it's not an issue in practice because ret is
only assigned to, not read from. ret could just be initialized to zero
but looking into it further, ret has been unused since it was first
added in 2012 so just get rid of it and update mips_get_syscall_arg's
return type since none of the return values are ever checked. If it is
ever needed again, this commit can be reverted and ret can be properly
initialized.
